New Ember Pricing Scheme Thoughts (with math)
With the new changes to the crystal, plus the costs of embers there are plenty of people upset with the changes. I set out to try to figure out how can we do this so that between the crystal, the actual costs per ember for the purchaser we find a middle ground that helps the viewers, streamers, and platform.
I used comparisons with bits costs (our one comparable analog) and then colorized based on more expensive than twitch and less expensive than twitch. I feel as if I have found a good medium. I also share some thoughts on direct donation compared to embers.

Please comment, and remember we are working together to make this the best for everyone involved.
I wanted to add to this. This isn't a "You should do it this way" type post. I wanted to illustrate that we have a lot of wiggle room within the current system to make embers more viable for viewers to purchase.
